The Handstand Dimension: The Magic of Yoga

The Handstand Dimension represents the “magic of yoga” because its development allows the student to achieve gravity defying feats. The name of this dimension is deceiving because it doesn’t just mean achieving handstand asanas but more so the strength of the whole body whilst the hands are on the floor.

The Handstand Dimension represents the “magic of yoga” because its development allows the student to achieve gravity defying feats. The name of this dimension is deceiving because it doesn’t just mean achieving handstand asanas but more so the strength of the whole body whilst the hands are on the floor.

Some ability landmarks of this dimension include but are not limited to Sun Salutations, downward facing dog, bakasana, handstand without support, and Vinyasa Kriya (ie. jump through abilities, “floating”, advanced transitions between asanas). The vinyasa kriya are the advanced abilities that combine upper body strength, core strength, and flexibility.

This workshop will introduce the Bheemashakti Method of achieving handstands including the ability to balance without the support of the wall. Bheemashakti Yoga also utilizes a breathing technique called Kapalabathi Breathing as a tool to build strength and stability in the body. This tool speeds the process of improving one’s practice.

Special Requirement: The desire to improve your practice!

Instructor Bio: Jonathan Patriarca, founder of Bheemashakti Yoga School, has been a long time practitioner of yoga. With a firm background in medicine, as a registered nurse, he has also had the honor of studying with masters like Pattabi Jois, David Swensen, Ganga White, Rudra Dev, and his most recent teacher Suresh.
